Phishing Fraud Emails

I am growing weary of constantly receiving fraudulent phishing emails. Here are a few examples. At one point, I was getting one almost EVERY day from Paypal imitators.

The term "phishing" refers to criminal individuals who send out emails, pretending to be from large, prominent companies. Their purpose is to obtain your personal account information, so that they may access your account, and CLEAN IT OUT. They are "fishing" for suckers - people who don't realize that the email messages are totally PHONY. DO NOT RESPOND to these emails. If you are REALLY mad, file a report on them with the FTC - the United States Federal Trade Commission - they have a VERY big stick.
Here are 3 examples that I have received.

Pretty slick, right? Often, if you carefully and critically read these bogus emails, you will see that they they just don't measure up to "Big Company Quality", regarding proper English grammar. It's Christmas time, and many criminal types want to steal your money. Call the main number of the organization involved, and verify any such email such as the above. You'll be glad you did. Or simply ignore them.

 

My personal recent fraudulent emails (multiple from each source) -

Charter One Bank phishing fraud

Nigerian type emails
"I have millions of dollars I must transfer to the US- send me your bank account number, so I can share it with you.". Oh, sure. Yeah. Right.
